The inaugural exhibition at Botafogo's new art jewel Casa Daros presents 75 works from the Daros archive, incorporating the combined talents of ten Colombian artists. Curated by Latin American specialist Hans-Michael Herzog, the huge halls of the former country mansion become a maze of installations, photography and paintings, from the hanging banana installation of José Alejandro Restrepo's 'Musa Paradisiaca' with its subtle politically charged videos of the killings in the Colombian countryside in the 1980s-90s to the more obvious message of modern consumerism in Nadín Ospina's sculptures blending Pre-Columbian antiquity with blatant, contemporary pop culture references.

Do not miss the time-absorbingly addictive video 'Re/Trato' by Oscar Muñoz, where the artist appears in a constant battle with the disappearing face he is tirelessly re-painting nor the acute detail of painstaking art of a different kind in Miguel Ángel Rojas' 'Es Mejor Ser Rico Que Pobre', using tiny dots of cut-up dollar bills to create prowling big cats. The messages vary from the obviously tragic to the subtly political, and this is not the first time the works have been seen together, but as a journey through Colombia's contemporary art scene, and as an introduction to this important new art institution, 'Cantos Cuentos Colombianos' makes for essential viewing.
